About 3/4 of the way through todays ride, my hac 4 just blanked out on me. The unit stopped transmitting heart rate about a month ago, even after I changed the battery in the heart rate transmiter. I understand that it is possibly a battery problem. There is a battery on the mounting bracket, chest strap, and magnet sensor. However, how am I supposed to change the battery in the head unit? Should I unscrew the tiny tiny phillips screws underneath it? Can someone share what happened to theirs the first time the battery ran out? Did it stop transmitting heart rate, then a month later completely turn off? Any help would be appreciated.

|When the battery in the head unit goes dead, you need to remove the screws on the back and access the battery - it's a bit tricky - but I have done it with no probems. If you are nervous about it, bring it into a watch repair place or a battery store and they will do it.
When the battery went dead for me, I had two symptoms: for about a week the transmission between the speed sensor & the head unit became erratic and then the screen blanked out. It was a bit odd when it did this. The display did a slow fade from top to bottom and then was completely blank and nothing happened.

|The unit was on when I woke up this morning, and giving out speed reading even though it wasn't connected to the handlebar mount...I'll change the battery like you described. Thanks.|
